As Bernie owns the commercial rights, it must be down to him.

Remember, he spent a lot of money in the past on the PPV digital tv service that failed, so you would have to hazard a guess that he is refusing to pay for the HD cameras etc.

As the tv companies are responsible for the broadcasts of the race in their country, I'd assume they are either expected to pick up the tab for this, or Bernie wants more money from them if they broadcast in HD as well.

 

The man has lost touch with the fact that the fans are the most important thing for F1, and without them, he wouldnt be the multi millionaire/billionaire that he is!

Maybe the other teams will stop whining like bitches now, and rise to the technical challenge!

Congratulations to Jenson Button for tying up the championship with a true champions drive.

Gotta love Brazil as a track as it certainly is one of the few tracks where overtaking is possible!

Of course you mustn't forget that the majority of the World's racing & rally cars are built & designed in the UK.

 

Is that right ?!?! ;)

Well things are looking shakey for the future this week.

Bridgestone pulling out after next season, Toyota pulling out now and Renault evaluating whether they will continue.

 

Bridgestone pulling out may not sound so bad, but after the way the FIA and Bernie shafted Michelin giving the tender to Bridgestone, and blew Goodyear offf when they wanted to return, there are not going to be that many options for tyre suppliers. Pirelli I think is interested, but I cant see who else will be.

 

Toyota pulling out will only affect the driver market as obviously Williams was the only team using their engines, and they had already switched for next year. And the upside is it should now allow the Sauber team back on the grid, depending on what the FIA say, as obviously Toyota signed the Concorde agreement, comitting themselves to the F1 championship until 2012.

 

Whether they pull out or not, Renault could really screw up Red Bulls chances next year, as they need to design their car around the engine.

While Brawn proved that you can shoe horn an engine in late, not everyone would be that lucky, and a Newey designed car would probably have a lot less room for adaptation than the Brawn car.

Red Bull has pretty much said this week that they will probably stick with Renault due to the time it is taking to sort out the Merc deal, and they need to design the car around the engine.

I really dont think he had a choice.

From the minute Merc started negotations, they made it clear that they didnt want him, despite what they say in the media.

 

Brawn were not playing fair with the way they dragged out signing him, and once Merc was in the frame for a takeover, the McLaren contract came within 2 days, proving that his services were no longer required.

 

Going anywhere else (dont forget the only other real contender was gonna be Red Bull, and both seats there were full) would have seen him doing a Damon Hill at Arrows.

 

I think he will surprise people this year, as Hamilton wont find the new fuel rules and narrower front tyres to his liking.

I was talking to Hamiltons brother Nick, a month or two ago, and even he says that he is shit with his tyres, and the new rules suit Jenson better.

    • Quite a few classics...I personally love No More Tears...fantastic album it just sounds soooo good
    • Loved the first two and quite enjoyed Revelation Highway...im just not a huge live album fan.
    • Yeah,health has finally got him...hope he has a welcome retirement(from touring) and as nyoilers has said puts out new studio music,although he has said he may still play live so long as it doesnt involve travel as such.
    • I don't know If I've heard a Ptibull song, if I did I didn't know it. 
    • Don't even bother looking it up. If you have avoided it this long, you are a lucky man.
    • The Darkness never clicked for me the few times I've tried them.  I've never heard a Coldpay song I liked.  As for U2, I like When Love Comes To Town and I don't mind One. Mariah Carey is pretty useless as far my musical tastes are concerned. I don't know if I've heard that Dance Monkey song.  
    • I'm not a big RHCP fan but I don't mind a few songs. do you think the chorus of this song is quite catchy?   
    • Alanis Morissette vocally speaking I can not handle, seems like a nice person otherwise.  Ironic is the most annoying song of all time followed closely by You Oughta Know.   Oasis is also very annoying, Wonderwall always hated that song. 
    • Just when you thought it was safe to board American Jetset, Baltimore’s antiheroes nose down into darker and more dangerous depths, as they unleash their capricious beast of an EP, Love Kills. It’s the soundtrack to the slasher flick in your head – the score to a horror film that never existed. The disillusioned descendants of the Sunset Strip­–era are creating a new arc in the evolution of 80s-inspired hard rock by animating a hybrid of lyrical and musical influences. These sleaze rock goth pop anthems will make the Love Kills EP an instant Jetset classic as it follows three nominations for Washington Area Music Awards for their previous release.    In 2022, the Jetset crew stormed through iconic venues alongside hard rock legends, including sold-out shows with Stephen Adler (Guns N' Roses) and Stephen Pearcy (Ratt) at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go. Their arena rock hooks and theatrical live show have earned the band extraordinary reviews and international airplay, all while developing a rabid fanbase in the US, UK, and abroad. The band is back with Love Kills and out for blood in 2023. The caged adrenaline and rage of the EP is a wild ride on the darker side, and will no doubt be heard blasting from speakers wherever the real Monsters roam. The release is now available for pre-order on CD, vinyl, and digital from Big Curve Music and will be in stores on 2/14/23. American Jetset hits the road in the U.S in April and will embark on their first European tour in September.  American Jetset - Love Kills (EP) {Multiple Formats} - PRE-ORDER – Big Curve Music
